Stock Report: Steady
Last Week's Rank: 1
Damian Lillard played four games this week, losing the first in a head-to-head matchup with Jrue Holiday. Lillard finished with 27 points, seven assists and seven rebounds before LaMarcus Aldridge missed a potential game-winner.
He followed with one of his worst shooting nights of the season in a loss to Milwaukee, though somewhat salvaged his 2-of-10, eight-point stat line with 11 assists.
Portland then went on to beat Chicago and Atlanta, with Lillard scoring 24 and 22 points, respectively.
Lillard is an obvious talent with loads of star power, but before activating it, he'll need to do a better job of picking and choosing when to facilitate and when to attack.
Otherwise, no complaints here. He defines the term NBA-ready, averaging 19.1 points and 6.5 assists in his first year on the job. Portland gave him his own office, and Lillard's feet are confidently up.
